Confirmed: Mayweather v McGregor to cost £19.95 on Sky Sports PPV

Mayweather v McGregor 31/07/2017

Following the news Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor will be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office on August 26, the price for the Pay-Per-View has also been revealed.

Rumours of extortionate fees to watch the fight in the UK have been quashed as Sky Sports confirmed the PPV will cost £19.95 on August 26.

In Ireland, the contest will retail at €24.95.

The Las Vegas showdown sees boxing’s biggest star of a generation face the new PPV king from the Ultimate Fighting Championship in a cross-codes blockbuster.

Mayweather v McGregor takes place at the T-Mobile Arena on the famous Nevada strip.

Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn had revealed Mayweather was hoping to charge fans a whopping £100 ($130 dollars) to view the McGregor offering but has been forced to back down.

“Mayweather wants the price to be £100,” Hearn told GQ previously.

“The price will be within the same realms as it always has. I don’t set the price, but my gut feeling is £19.95.

“If it went to £24.95 – I can’t see it, it wouldn’t be my decision. Sky won’t want to go beyond £19.95. That is their price point,” he added.

In a previous article, WBN predicted anything over £24.95 would have fans in uproar as the usual fee for top notch events is Hearn’s previously mentioned £19.95.

For this one-off showpiece, £19.95 – the same as Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko, is a reasonable figure as the PPV will be on sale in the United States for almost 90 dollars, 100 in HD.

The undercard for Mayweather v McGregor is the next announcement to be made, presumably by the end of this week in order to tie in with the completion of the major TV.
